Sermon Notes & Small Group Questions

How could I do such a wicked thing? It would be a great sin against God.” – Genesis 39:9 

“Some time later, Pharaoh’s chief cup-bearer and chief baker offended their royal master. Pharaoh became angry with these two officials, and he put them in the prison where Joseph was, in the palace of the captain of the guard. They remained in prison for quite some time, and the captain of the guard assigned them to Joseph, who looked after them” –Genesis 40:1-3

 “While they were in prison, Pharaoh’s cup-bearer and baker each had a dream one night, and each dream had its own meaning. When Joseph saw them the next morning, he noticed that they both looked upset. “Why do you look so worried today?” he asked them.” – Genesis 40:5-8

“And they replied, “We both had dreams last night, but no one can tell us what they mean.” “Interpreting dreams is God’s business,” Joseph replied. “Go ahead and tell me your dreams.” – Genesis 40:8

“Pharaoh’s birthday came three days later, and he prepared a banquet for all his officials and staff. He summoned[a] his chief cup-bearer and chief baker to join the other officials. He then restored the chief cup-bearer to his former position, so he could again hand Pharaoh his cup. But Pharaoh impaled the chief baker, just as Joseph had predicted when he interpreted his dream.” – Genesis 40:20-22 

“Pharaoh’s chief cup-bearer, however, forgot all about Joseph, never giving him another thought.” – Genesis 40:23 

“When two full years had passed, Pharaoh had a dream…” – Genesis 41:1 

We Have Two Roads We Can Follow When We Feel Like God Is Silent.

• Road #1 – We can choose the road that leads to God. We can run to Him.

• Road #2 – We can choose the road that leads away from God. We can run away from Him.

“Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him...” Job 13:15

Group Questions: 

Q1: There are often times in our lives when it seems that God isn’t there or is too far away to care about what is happening in our day to day life. What was your take away from this session when it comes to those times when God seems absent?

Q2: What are some ways you can determine whether God's still small voice is speaking to you?Joseph was just 17 when he was ripped away from everything he knew and sold into slavery by his own brothers. Many of you are this age or are close to it, how do you think an event like this would mold your perspective about God’s hand in your life?

Q3: Have you experienced moments of personal tragedy in your life? If yes, how do you see God has shaped you from those moments and what did you learn about His character in that time?
